Taking a group photo at a business event recently, a male manager from a different region put his arms behind our shoulders. We are all women. He rested his hand on the back of my neck and left it there the whole time. His hand was on my skin, and I felt slightly uncomfortable. Is it normal to touch someone that way when taking a photo? Shouldn't he have put his hand on my shoulder, which was clothed? My work partner had raised a big strategy idea at our national convening recently, which had been shot down, so he teased me about that for three days, brushed me off when I came to him with a refined version, telling me it would never work, and when I followed up by asking for his advice, he directed me to a woman on his team. His team is all women, and he spent a lot of time praising them, but I am starting to get the feeling he is an a-hole. I'm not going to waste my time on him. I am going to take his advice, speak to one of the women under him, and get this thing done.

In response to a confession. No, she wouldn't be stuck at the office four extra hours, lol. We're 8-5 with no overtime. Part of why she goes so fast, is because she's competing with the other nurses. We take calls from patients and, for whatever reason, competition motivates her. She doesn't have to take more calls than anyone, she just enjoys "beating" everyone's call numbers, and in order to beat them, she has to work fast. Anyway, turns out, I didn't have to say anything. The boss called her in yesterday and asked her how/why her phone stats are still so high when she's training. Today was MUCH better, because she was out of the phone queue and actually teaching me. She's great at her job, and she's actually a really good teacher... when she slows the fuck down and actually teaches, lol. Also, fwiw, I love training people and plan on being a trainer, once I'm settled in. I enjoy teaching and will earn preceptor pay. Different strokes.

We have a strict dress code and it includes regular bathing because some people used to show up reeking of last night's beer and smoke fest. Geez, it's amazing what you have to tell some people.

In response to a confession. Thank god presentation is finally over and I didn't bomb it. I started working on the PPT at 11pm the night before our conference. Like making the slides up until the last minute. Didn't sleep and pulled an all-nighter. Since we were the organizers, I was busy up until it started. Presentation was fine, but I really wish I started working on it earlier to give myself more time to rehearse. I didn't rehearse it once at all. These are professionals in our field, so really wish I got over my major anxiety sooner to allow more prep.

I just started a new job and my preceptor is my best friend. The job itself is extremely complicated and there are a million minute details that go into performing a single task. Her training method is basically me observing her, while she performs her job at the speed of light. I keep telling her it isn't working, but she doesn't get it. Pretty sure I'm going to have to request a new preceptor, and it's going to suck, but wtf... who can just observe for 8 hours and actually learn? Not me!

In response to a confession. Why do you feel bad? No one wants to go to work, especially after being off. If anyone should feel bad, it should be your boss for asking such a lame/dumb/obvious question. What a schmuck, expecting you to lie in front of your coworkers.

Back around 2009, a woman I worked with started wearing what she *thought* were leggings to work. She's wore them with long shirts that were past her butt, but still a few inches above her knees. Unfortunately, they weren't leggings; they were tights and they were not opaque. They were see through. When she got in trouble for it, she cried discrimination because she was overweight. The reality was that she didn't know how to dress herself and was flashing her damn panties at everyone and their diabetic grandma. Another woman wore booty shorts and got in trouble and also claimed discrimination for being overweight. No one dressed like that except her because we understood that no one wants to see the bottom biscuits of their damn co-workers. Needless to say, our dress code is strict now and explicitly outlines what is and is not appropriate.

It's official- my coworker is boinking one of the managers. That explains why she shows up for work when she feels like it. The weirdest part is that she complains all the time.

My old job let thinner and younger women wear leggings, but if you were overweight or older you could not wear them

When my boss asked me at our staff meeting in front of everyone (our team of about 8) whether I feel happy about to be back, I took a long pause. I thought do I answer honestly or do I lie? I lied and said,"Yes" but of course, everyone noticed the pause, and joked about it. I felt kinda bad.
